Happened to capture a photo of me wearing Norma Bennett’s endless scarf when I was posing with some birthday gifts recently.
Chautauqua seems so far in the past now, but we’re still enjoying all the great items we picked up from some of our favorite vendors. I’m in the process of ordering
endless scarves (I told you about them and Granny’s Knits and Gifts in a previous post) for holiday gifts and thought since I’m in the spirit of things, I’m going to share with my readers as well!
Win this same pale green color of endless scarf!!
Guidelines: The contest is simple. You can either write me a story or send me a photo. I’ve plucked 7 words (“Traveling Marla” counts as one word) from recent posts: : scarf, Traveling Marla, storm, frontier, apple, coil, Ewok
Story = Include the words, in any order, in a flash story or poem of 50 words or fewer (any word may be made plural).
Bonus points if you use any noun as a verb! Bonus points if you
don’t use Ewok to describe Traveling Marla.
Photo(Shop) or Drawing = Submit a photo (or doctored photo) or drawing representing as many of the words as possible.
SUBMIT via Facebook message ( through my WRITER page only!) or by sending to marla at marlasinkdruzgal dot com.
Do NOT submit your entry via comment. I would like them to be fresh and new and surprising for readers in a future post (No worries, I can keep you anonymous
if you ask!)
DEADLINE: Friday, November 16th, MIDNIGHT.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos of some of our favorite Chautauqua vendors!
Kurt is the candied nut conoisseur, and this mix by the folks who run The Attic cafe, he says, are perfection. All I know is that they were GONE within a day…
Great products from a great family. And finally, FINALLY someone used anise oil in their soap. I know, I know, anise is a love/hate relationship but as someone who loves it, well, I bought him out of all his anise soaps.
Diane Rapaich and Peter Staples make these gorgeous copper plant hangers. We purchased one for ourselves and one for a holiday gift.
We bought a beautiful glass star from Amy. Both Kurt and I were stopped in our tracks when we saw it spinning at the front of her booth. We’ve made and seen plenty of glass artistry but nothing ever caught our attention as strikingly as her beautiful pieces. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Amy-Citko-Designs/170132463046593
We’ve never had better lemonade anywhere. We stalked these folks at the Madison Regatta and again at Chautauqua. Perfect. I only wish they carried the lemon shake-ups in The Attic cafe in addition to festivals. Yummy.
I might have provided this lady’s salary for a month. I bought a journal for each of my friends and a few for myself. They’re expensive but gorgeous, detailed and unique. http://www.reimaginedonline.com/leather-journals/
